“This Portland band adds a strong political edge while beefing up the production on their 3rd album of punkish high-octane pop, with many of the songs featuring lead singer Hutch Harris venting against the convergence of Christian fundamentalism and political totalitarianism.” – Don Yates

    Thanks to KEXP, I discovered The Thermals.
    Thanks to them, I was able to attend their show in France last Saturday in Paris.

    It was a nice gig and I really hope that they will come back here soon ! There are already a lot of pictures of them around the web but now… a few more on my website.
